Fans react to British soldiers fainting during the parade

Several Twitter users took to their social media to share their reactions to the news of several British soldiers fainting during the military parade rehearsals which were conducted to salute Prince William. One of them wrote, “I looked up 30 Celsius to Fahrenheit and it’s only 86. That’s our winter in Florida.” Another user defended the British temperature by stating, “We have higher humidity in the UK though, so it feels higher than that.” 

Another user commented, “Haha that’s just our winter in Florida!!!” They’re acclimated to temperatures lower than this, they are in heavy uniforms and have to do a strenuous routine without any stops for water or anything. Pointing and laughing at the dude that fainted on camera isn’t cool.” 

A user went on to explain that AC does not exist in the UK, whatever the temp is outside, it is the same inside and if it gets too hot, there is no way to cool off.

Difficult conditions but you all did a really good job.” He also shared pictures from the parade and appreciated the hard work that went behind preparing for an event like such, especially during such weather conditions.
